Is Oprah Right On Psalm 37:4? What Do You Think It Truly Means To Delight Yourself In The Lord?
Reader, Oprah Winfrey has claimed that her favorite bible verse Psalm 37:4 states that “that if we delight ourselves in The Lord (which is really a sense of goodness, kindness, love, etc) then good things will happen to us". We're not so sure this is right. Do you agree? What do you think it truly means to delight yourself in the Lord?
This is why studying scripture deeper is a must! We can make it say whatever we want! Listen to how Oprah explains Psalm 37:4 to make it fit all religions instead of focusing on Jesus Himself!! "Jesus taught that no one can truly love the Lord God, no one can truly delight in the Lord God of Israel, who does not receive Jesus himself as the Son of God and the Redeemer of the world sent into the world by Yahweh."
Pastor John Piper gives his take on this.
